Happy Wife = Happy Life. Maybe:)


Based on everything going on, I am finding humor in everything.  Very generously for my Birthday KSP gave me a monthly membership at a local spa where I can go get a massage each month (there may have been implied subtext here, if I am more relaxed, I am more happy, less naggy:)  Happy wife = Happy Life, ok I get it babe).  One thing I am not so good at is self-care.  My feet are still in desperate need of that pedicure and my back feels like a 100 year old oak tree whose roots are so large that they have broken ground are are weaving themselves everywhere and anywhere they want (much like the one next to our driveway).  So today, since I could use some downtime (like all you folks out there), I decided to book a massage  for tomorrow with my membership and use my rollover from last month that I didn’t use and then I remembered what happens to me every time I lay down on a massage table….

– Golda Meir

For some reason this quote makes me laugh.  Perhaps because it is so representative of me and I can actually picture myself anytime there is a moment of peace, whether it’s in my living room or on a massage table.  The peaceful place, in this case, the massage table, is the place where I make grocery lists, come up with new business ideas, think of all the things I need to do for the kids, our house, etc….lists, lists and more lists.   Does this happen to anyone else?  I know several people who are really good at disconnecting…so curious to hear what happens to others when ever they get a moment of peace. Do you take it or are you like me?

Ok, and one last thing about this…the spell check on my computer, doesn’t recognize the words massage, it wants to give me message or medi-care…how awesome is that?

Recognizing this about myself makes today ‘mynewfavoriteday’ what makes it yours?

About Shannon Pruitt from 'Mynewfavoriteday'

Welcome to 'mynewfavoriteday. This space is about gratitude and connecting through being open, vulnerable and real. I hope you will enjoy my take on motivation, inspiration and advocacy and will take the opportunity to tell me of your own thoughts and stories. Why I started 'mynewfavoriteday.' I am a childhood surviving, divorced, now happily married, IVF (and now natural pregnancy) success story, working mother of 2 amazing babies who were born 12 weeks premature. As life often seems to surprise you when you least expect it, we added another sweet baby girl M to our family in July of 2013. While our angel minis, Q and E are now 7 years old, our son, Q, has thrived while our daughter, E, has had a much more difficult journey. She is considered special needs and in September of 2012 was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Angelman Syndrome. And so, as she has grown, so do we as individuals and as family. How to help her, how to celebrate our differences while allowing ourselves to cope with the challenges that we never knew to expect. Thus, while much of this blog is based on our experiences (good and not-so-good), it is also based on how we must not let ourselves become victims of our circumstances but rather advocate in our own lives. A little bit about me and who I am. In my professional life I am a marketer in the Entertainment Industry; however, ‘mynewfavoriteday,’ was not born of entertainment or marketing but rather as a pathway to help myself and others as we try to define who we are as parents, family members, spouses, friends, colleagues and people. I believe in never judging a book by its cover. Every cover is different, and no matter what your cover looks like, you never know how someone's book is written. Like mine. From the outside, you might never know what truly makes me who I am or what I believe. This blog explores the pages on the inside of my book. My vulnerabilities, fears, happiness, and all my triggers through the lens of being grateful for all the amazing blessings I know I have received but sometimes forget in the challenges of daily life. Thanks again for dropping by. I hope you will come back, subscribe, comment, share, and/or just hang out and be inspired or motivated to make each day for yourself or someone else 'anewfavoriteday.' By being here, you have certainly helped to make it mine. xo, Shannon

    Funny post. I like the them the last couple days. Thanks for sharing. I have that same monthly pass and had some many built up (5) I went for a 2 hour massage and facial three weeks ago. Heaven. Next week I’m again getting my hair done. Self care is apparently important to me or possibly it’s Vanity..LOL. I am a native California you know (minus anything foreign in my body or injections lol)

    Enjoy your massage Missy!
